A Step-by-Step Guide to Install Your Home CCTV Security Camera

The installation process of your CCTV security camera can seem daunting, especially if you are not tech-savvy. However, it's pretty achievable and enables you to view your entire property just by a simple glance at your personal computer or smartphone device.

The best part of CCTV installed cameras is that they can help you stop criminal-related activities even before they occur. Hence, having the know-how to install them is a plus in enhancing security and protection.

If you are having a CCTV installation done for the first time, check out what needs to be done.

Select Your CCTV Camera 

Different security cameras vary based on their design, manufacturer, specifications and ability to function. Hence, it is important to take time to understand the type of camera that will best secure your facility. If necessary, involve a professional who understands their specification and explain your needs for them to advise on the best option for your home. 

CCTV cameras can either be wireless or wired. Therefore, consider alternatives based on your budget to select a camera system to address your concern fully. With modern technology systems, you may consider Wi-Fi security cameras for enhanced network signals.

Choose Appropriate Points of Installation 

To maximise the use of your CCTV camera, you must have it installed in the right position. Basically, your security camera system should cover a larger angle and circumference area to keep track of all the activities that take place day and night. 

Some of the best locations to have the cameras installed include the front and back door, window areas, off-street areas, topmost roof areas and so on. 

Home security cameras are designed to increase surveillance of the area. Therefore, when installing, ensure they are secured in secret places of your home to prevent outsiders from easily noticing them. 

Secure Installation Materials 

To install your security cameras, ensure you have anchors, screws, a power adapter and receiver, cables and an electric drill.

Plan Your Security Cable and Wire Route Channel

If you are doing a multiple-camera installation process, you need to come up with the best route channel. In most cases, your selection should consider the shortest route possible to ease the installation process. 

Mount the Cameras 

Proceed by drilling holes to have the anchors screwed on the facial board ceiling, walls or any other spots. Next, secure your cameras on the anchors while ensuring that they are tight enough not to fall off. When done, run tests to ensure that your cameras display the best motion detection of the selected area.

Hi, my name is Kat. When I was a kid, I always followed around my dad as he worked on electrical projects, and I became very interested in it. When I went backpacking during a gap year, I noticed that people all over the world have different ways of harnessing and using light. I decided to integrate those ideas into my own conception of electricity. Now, I help my friends design their lighting for their new homes and I do a bit of consulting. However, I also love to write so I started this blog. Please, explore and enjoy reading! Welcome to my space of the internet!
